Germanwings flies into the summer of 2012 with 20 new destinations

Germanwings is launching its new summer flight plan for 2012 this Sunday with several new destinations. The company is planning many maiden flights in the coming days, especially in both of its largest bases: Cologne/Bonn and Stuttgart. From the Rhine region, the discount airline founded in 2002 will fly to 9 new destinations, from Baden-Württemberg even to ten new ones. For Berlin and Dortmund there is also some news for this summer.

Germanwings is further turning towards the south from its hub Cologne/Bonn: for example, one more destination in North Africa will join the list at the beginning of July in the glamourous shape of Casablanca, the largest city in Morocco and the fourth destination on the African continent after Tunis, Tanger and Nador which the discount airline is flying to from Cologne this summer. Additional new destinations are London Heathrow, Naples, Jerez de la Frontera, Catania and Rijeka. Passengers flying from Cologne/Bonn will also benefit from frequency increases to places like Barcelona and Prague.

Stuttgart airport will claim the largest number of new summer destinations with connections to southern Europe as the main focus of expansion. Maiden flights to Venice, Catania, Dubrovnik, Bilbao, Brussels, Bremen, Manchester, Milan and Rijeka are planned for the coming days and weeks. London Heathrow has been a new destination since the middle of February already.

Germanwings will also begin a new and attractive route this summer with its flight from Berlin-Schönefeld to Rijeka. The route to Pula, moreover, is developing itself so successfully that it will carry on until August.

Germanwings is tweaking its existing range of destinations for this summer’s flight schedule from Dortmund and will offer more flying days for both the connections to Palma de Mallorca and Split so there is more capacity. In this way, the overall range of possibilities to these holiday islands will go up by 20% and to Croatia by some 50%
